Explore London Transport Museum in the heart of Covent Garden. Our exhibitions uncover the story of London and its transport system over the last 200 years, highlighting the powerful link between transport and the growth of modern London, culture and society since 1800.

We care for over 450,000 items - preserving, researching and acquiring objects to use in our galleries, exhibitions and other activities.

Top designer Wayne Hemingway created today’s London Transport uniforms, recognisable the world over. But what does it take to make a great transport outfit?

Take on the role of a material scientist to experiment and discover what keeps London’s transport workers equipped, safe and comfortable. Design and create new clothing for all your transport needs then test them for durability with water, heat, light and wind (hold on to your hats!).
